Where’s your house, and I promise not to egg it, Menelaus
Nice little condo where Roswell and Powers Ferry meet
Ridgedale Park. Just look for my mailbox
Hey, we’re neighbors!
I hope to soon understand all these Atlanta references
See you at the Bucket Shoppe. Where Eagles Dare is there for all Auburn games
There's a prominent dwarf missing in East point. I don't want to just conclusions here but foul play seems likely. He is in a wheelchair and doesn't seem tettibly mobile. I hope he's found unharmed.
The Bama contingent continues to grow. Welcome, friend
About to sell my place
They’ll probably be beneath you once you immerse yourself in Buckhead City culture
Where is your office located?
City should reclaim it and turn it into affordable housing
About 2 miles away from the new house. Let me know if I should post my SSN here or in a DM.
I’m just learning of this Buckhead City stuff. The whites are at it again.
Bruv, you’re about to be knee deep in the shit
You can use the reference guide in your Ivy Social Club welcome packet.
Cute way to play it off.
We're on to you
Was reading their website last night. Right wing grievance culture has no bounds.
I also found Bill White’s twitter. What a massive piece of shit.
DM is fine
but seriously just making sense of opting to buy up there. That will be a nice commute.
That and Sarah Smith school zoning pushed us to Buckhead.
When’s the housewarming party?
As your closest neighbor ITT I expect an invite Menelaus
Moving to Morningside next month. Hate leaving West Midtown but excited for the new neighborhood.
A coworker just left Morningside in 2021. He got $1.1 million for 2400 sqft.
That's a deal these days. I'm in Piedmont Heights next door and it's wild as hell out there right now. Someone just paid $0.9M for ~2,400sqft on Monroe
2400 square feet? Must be nice
Good for y’all rich folk
As soon as the WOKE mob stops defunding my boys in blue and it’s safe enough for you and Kyleighton to come over
A fully formed Buckhead Man® had emerged from the ether
On the way to Le Colonial for the first time. Pretty excited.
My cousin bought a house in Morningside within the last year or so. Really liked that neighborhood.
Morningside/Highlands area is great. We've been down here for 10 years and it's still my favorite part of the city
Watch out for the owl attacks. It was sent from Midtown for Buckhead's attempted split from Atlanta.
Did eight sushi tonight. Order two apps, two rolls and two entrees. Everything was good to great.
Anyone ever hiked(?) in East Palisades? My buddy's family is in town and they were going to go to Sweetwater Creek or East Palisades. He was calling it "some bamboo hike/walk that his family found online."
Then they were all going to get BBQ, and were choosing between Fat Matt's and Fox Bros. Told him to also look into Rodney Scott's, but any of the 3 are good.
Do the Palisades and then get Heirloom Market
Palisades is a great, short route. I love Sweetwater, but it takes a bit to get out there. Only reason to go is if youre wanting to float in creek.
If I was deciding between 3 bbq spots none of these would be on my list lol
Yes, it's a pretty cool hike along the 'hooch
Almost mentioned Heirloom, but have a feeling they want to sit down -- will mentioned it now Fran Tarkenton . The Rodney Scott ribs I had last week may have been the best ribs I've ever had though. That shit was delicious.
Both are fun, but I prefer Sweetwater. While it’s crowded, 95% of the people stay on the main trails and once you get off those I rarely see more than a few other people. Was actually out there the other weekend and basically had the place to myself.
Could you post the article?
Cisco Systems Inc. may be considering Georgia for a new headquarters as the cost of living in Silicon Valley starts to erode its cache as a premiere tech market.
Last year, Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) selected Midtown to build a 700-job innovation center, a major win for Atlanta's technology industry. But Georgia Department of Economic Development documents reveal an even bigger expansion could be in the works.
Cisco innovation center, a "potential headquarters play in the future" could happen, according to a July 2021 summary of the 700-job project obtained by Atlanta Business Chronicle. This document outlines known attributes about a company's project before it chooses a location, like its space needs or the other states the company is considering.
It is unclear whether the deal is still active or if Cisco would relocate from Silicon Valley completely or establish Atlanta as a second headquarters. Cisco has not publicly disclosed interest in further expansion in Atlanta and did not respond to request for comment. The state department of economic development declined to comment.
How Cisco could boost Atlanta's tech industry
Landing Cisco could elevate Atlanta’s position in the ranking of major markets for technology companies. The San Jose, California-based technology conglomerate is ranked No. 74 on the Fortune 500 list. Already, Cisco plans to grow its local workforce to 1,700 once the company completes its $41 million innovation center. Average wages at the center are $118,000.
Atlanta landed both Microsoft Corp.'s and Google's East Coast hubs last year. Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) has a 1,500-person office in Midtown and is planning a 90-acre campus that could create tens of thousands of jobs. Google is in a 19-story Midtown tower.
Scoring big names in tech often attract more companies into the mix and bolster the city's startup ecosystem. Amazon.com Inc. (NYSE: AMZN), Cash App, Nike and Airbnb (Nasdaq: ABNB) have all announced major Atlanta expansions in the past year.
Cisco choosing Atlanta for a relocation or a second headquarters is not outside of the realm of possibility. The company’s leadership already has ties to the state. CEO Chuck Robbins and Chief Financial Officer Scott Herren are both Georgia Tech graduates. Herren bought a home in Atlanta in October of last year, according to state property deeds. Cisco’s Senior Vice President of Americas Rachel Barger is also based in Atlanta.
Atlanta's cost-of-living advantage
Atlanta's relatively low cost of living and diversity of people and industries have become distinct advantages for the city's tech growth. Across the nation, tech workers are moving out of major hubs, namely San Francisco, Boston and Chicago, according to LinkedIn data. Sun Belt cities are capturing the migration.
Documents detailing Cisco’s interest in Georgia were made available to the public one month after its former CEO and Chairman John Chambers said he would rather launch a startup in Atlanta and Austin, Texas, over Silicon Valley due to the lower costs of living.
The average rent for a 1-bedroom apartment in San Jose, California is $2,480, whereas the average is $1,710 in Atlanta, according to a national rent report from Zumper. But Atlanta's reputation of affordability is starting to change — apartment rents rose by 20.4% within the last year, according to a first quarter report from CBRE.
“I want Silicon Valley to win. Don't misunderstand me,” Chambers said in May. “I want us to be successful here, but I also want to send a very direct message. If we don't disrupt ourselves, we are going to get disrupted. And right now it's not looking good.”
Chambers is not the only leader in Silicon Valley detracted by its high costs of living and doing business. Perhaps the splashiest example of this is CEO Elon Musk relocating the corporate headquarters of Tesla Motors to Austin, Texas late last year.
They took your advice and are happy with that decision. In fact, they just sent a pic from Heirloom.
And here I thought Sweetwater was just a beer
You must float the mainstream
Did the Americano tonight and ordered most of the menu.
Steak was great but there are great steaks all over Atlanta. The bolognese was unbelievable. Probably the best pasta dish I've ever had. Scott Conant was there and super nice. Spoke to every table.
